    I need some serious help, but can't find anything on this subject anywhere.

    I just bought a brand new Ipad yesterday, I have itunes on my PC.

    I bought some movies on the itunes store and downloaded them.

    They appear on my itunes menu under Movies, but when I sync with Ipad, it does not copy them over???

    I can't figure out for the life of me why this won't copy.

    Can anyone help please????

    Welcome to the Forum!

    OK - the iPad has a real clever trick ‘up its sleeves’. Now you’d expect those movies from your iTunes PC app to end up - well - in your iPad’s .. um .. iTunes app, sounds sensible to me (but, hey, what do I know!). Now that would be far too simple! The iPad tries to confuse and confound by placing movies in the iPad’s native ‘Video’ app and music in the ‘iPod’ app.

    Hope this works but, in any case....Good to hear from you. You’ll find a whole bunch of iPad enthusiasts in this Forum who are only too willing to help other iPad owners and to hear of their experiences. Don’t be afraid to post any questions you may have or use the ‘Search’ button near the top of the Forum web page. I usually find I discover one new interesting and useful piece of information about my iPad every day - and often not even what I was looking for!!

    Hope to hear from you soon with your thoughts about the iPad.

    Have fun and enjoy your iPad


    If you don’t already have it you can download a copy of the iPad manual for free from


    http://manuals.info.apple.com/en_US/...User_Guide.pdf

    Also the iPad2 manual is available for pre-order at the Apple iBooks store - available March 11th. It’s free too.

    By the way, as you probably know (sorry!) you can download movies direct to your iPad from the iPad’s iTunes app - you don’t need to download to your PC first of all and then sync (though it makes sense to back them up...just in case!).

    If my first post suggestion doesn’t work, get back - there are several other possibilities.

    Good luck

    Hello,

    I am also a new user. I looked for a video app on my iPad2 but I cannot find one. Can you recommend an app that I can download from the app store?

    The app in question is called "Videos" and should be on the first page. It is impossible for your iPad 2 to not have that app. Perhaps you moved it into a folder somewhere tucked away on a distant page?

    If you cannot find the icon, you can always search for it, just scroll left repeatedly.

    Can't Find Video App!

    I have looked on all of my iPad2 pages and it is not anywhere. Does anyone know how to reload my video app? Do I have to restore my iPad and resync everything?

    This is how the icon looks like in case you didn't get it. Can you see the videos app icon in iTunes?

    maybe you didnt check the option under movies tab, to download all movies automatically.

    My movies downloaded fine, and the icon is nowhere to be found. The only way I can access my movies is to search for videos.

    Has anyone ever seen this before?

    Thanks to all for your help!
